Creating a World without Borders

Adrián López from Mexico/USA

You know? One of my goals today is to be one of the best welders in the United States and to be a worthy person in the Latin community. I want to let them know that we have the opportunity to be the best because we have the values and the character to do it.

Why stop at breaking down borders between welders? Why not make a difference and keep looking for a world without borders or skin color barriers?

Why stop at breaking down borders between welders? Why not make a difference and keep looking for a world without borders or skin color barriers, just building bridges, not just break down the border between welders, but also the borders between citizens.

You know? One of my goals today is to be one of the best welders in the United States and to be a worthy person in the Latin community. I want to let them know that we have the opportunity to be the best because we have the values and the character to do it.

Why not make a difference and keep looking for a world without borders or skin color barriers, just building bridges and continuing the dream of professor Samuel Colton to break down the borders between welders.

And not just break down the border between welders, but also the borders between citizens. This is a dream that I share with professor Colton.

Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, the Dalai Lama, and Cesar Estrada Chavez were men who fought for their goals and achieved their dreams and their objectives.

Why can't I, Adrián López help build a community of citizens witout borders?

You know? We can make a better world, and for that reason I have taken on this hard task because I know that one day I can be someone important, and I know that some day, I can take my words beyond this paper.

Both my parents, Mr. Francisco López and Ms. Lorena De López, have led me to this way of thinking. Thanks Dad, for all those days of hard work to make me a good man. Thanks Mother, for all the nights of sleep you lost when I was sick. Thanks for everything. I love you both.
